Contest Revised (October 9, 2009)
So, turnout has been a bit lower than I had hoped for this contest. I stroll around message boards and people are shooting their gear a lot. So I've switched things up to maybe spark an onslaught of entries. The way this one goes with determine if we do more giveaways in the future. I have another planned already and it's bigger.

There have been some really cool entries so far, I just want to see more. Remember, even if you don't win the bag… you may get a T-Shirt!

1) You can enter more than once, but only post one image per message board post.
2) Pictures showing your $150,000 in gear would be great photos!
3) Cats are allowed to appear in your photos.
4) The Gura Gear Kiboko is awesome
5) Have fun.

I have a couple of contests for free stuff planned, and this is the first one.

Read on for the contest rules.
